1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Nigeria as a country has being under continous change politically; the issue of budget and budget planning and development varies from one political administration to the other. With the incoming of new political administration, a new budget planing and implemetation will be the order of the day.

Before we go deep into the study; we will first of all define budget: A budget  according to Olurankise , 2012 defined budget as a framework for revenue and expenditure outlays over a specified period usually one year.

In other words, budget can simply be defined as an instrument stipulating policies, it can also be a programme that aimed at realizing the overall development aims and objectives of a government. This aim varies from government to government; take a look at the past political era under the leadership of president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to the new era under the leadership of president Buhari from the year 2015 till date. In this present adminstration the issue of budget is on the high side, from missing budget to budget padding and so on.

In very political regime, budget and budgeting development and implemmentation has brought about so many controversies to step by step orderly process for preparation and administration of budget in Nigeria. The concepts of budgeting and ideology varies from one political administration to the other. This variation continue to increase as a new adminstration takes over from the previous adminstration and so on.

Take a critical look at the 2013 budget, we see that the controversy placed on the national assembly from oil benchmark has limited the adminstration and passage of the 2013 budget.

The government agencies and other agencies incharge of spending can not spend or plan budget without the go ahead from the federal minmstry of finance under the warrant from the governor of the state or the preseident of the country.

During this particular phase of budget planning and implementation, there are a lot of possibilities for interventions and also manipulations having it in mind that government  officials have the discretionary power to choose which spending ministry or agency will be given the  authorization to spend.
